Photo of the week: Ha Long Bay, Viet Nam

The houses in the picture are all part of a floating village in the sea, in Ha Long Bay in northern Viet Nam. Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO world heritage site with hundreds upon hundreds of rocks like these rising up from the water. Tourist junks weave in and out of the rocks but every now and again you see a large ship with a powdery black cargo piled all the way to the top. Our tour guide explained that it was coal being transported to feed  neighbouring China’s hungry economy.
